Just to note on the particular issue raised by Gary:
gnuplot.py faces exactly the same problem as gplt but relies
on the user to implement apprpriate delays.  What is unclear
from the descriptions that I've read is whether this is a
gnuplot problem or a problem with pipes under Windows.
If the former, do the gnuplot developers know about it?

Can you summarize your experience with biggles?
